    a really symple syndication feed is like a message feed that allows you to inform people of updates without using email. an example from my site (http://kayeskinner.com/feed2.xml):
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <rss version="2.0">
      <channel>
        <title>ben kaye-skinner</title>
        <link>http://kayeskinner.com</link>

          <description>that's right - more stuff! a sample recording of &#38;lt;a href="http://kayeskinner.com/audio/Jesu%20sample.mp3"&#38;gt;Jesu, Joy of Man's Discomfort&#38;lt;/a&#38;gt;, the first sheet music on the site (&#38;lt;a href="http://kayeskinner.com/images/Grace%20So%20Amazing.gif"&#38;gt;Grace Amazing&#38;lt;/a&#38;gt; and &#38;lt;a href="http://kayeskinner.com/images/La%20Rosa.gif"&#38;gt;La Rosa: Flor de Amor) and an easter egg worth over $10,000 to the first person to find it!*&#38;lt;br /&#38;gt;&#38;lt;br /&#38;gt;*only two of those things are true.</description>
